Corneal crosslinking shows favourable long-term outcomes

September 1, 2014

Studies with follow-up of 2 to 6 years show that corneal crosslinking for progressive keratectasia is safe and induces long-term structural changes.

Data showed that CXL results in a significant keratometric flattening effect that is stable in most eyes, while causing minimal complications or significant best spectacle-corrected visual acuity (BSCVA) loss, noted Prof. Seiler, professor of ophthalmology, University of Zurich, and chairman, IROC Zurich, Switzerland.
